As a male I feel a little ghey watching this.

But I'm not going to apologize.

In addition to the gheyness I feel a little like Jane Goodall must've felt as she was watching the chimps for the first time from her blind in the jungles of Uganda.

Sort of like if National Geographic did an episode on girls.

Do girls really act that way when alone?

If a boy was in the group the whole dynamic would change. He'd interrupt all the time and drop innuendos. So we can never see you in your native habitat.

It feels authentic but I would think there would be more drama. Last year Mio and her friend with the hairband got into a fight cause one was jealous. Seems like there would be more of that.

Awesome episode, then again Azusa is my favourite character.

I wonder how they'll handle all of them graduating, I think come the end it'll actually be quite sad. It's going to be one of those that I really hope for a happy ending, maybe something along the lines of they all grow up and actually form a band together, it'd be a shame for their group to split up, but sadly enough that's what life does to people.

Here's hoping they'll write in a way for them all to carry on being together. ^_^

My girl friends do. Sadly ... ...

Anywhoo... I doubt K-On will end sadly (don't quote me -_-) otherwise cars will be flipped and stores burned.

"Are you comparing girls to wild animals?"... is what I was thinking the whole time while reading your post.

OK, I read the linked Snopes article, but that doesn't really address whether the Japanese believe that eating cold foods (Watermelon and Ice Cones) and then Tempura give them food poisoning. Is that a real belief?

Have to agree with the folks that say it seems like this was the K-on version of Endless Eight. Of course that implies that Kyoto maybe learned that the trick to doing an effective Endless Eight is not to actually do it over eight freakin episodes

One of the more enjoyable episodes of Season 2 so far.

I don't think food poisoning is the right word. I know my stomach reacts when I eat oil-filled foods (deep fried etc) and then eat ice cream. It just gives you a really harsh stomach ache.

Good for not apologizing but I have to admit I'm mystified why watching girls might be thought "ghey" unless you hang around with Really-Broken-Male role models.

Not sure what "that way" is.... some females do some don't. It depends on the personalities and the dynamic - as well as the culture. You're watching a fictional account of high school Japanese girls.

Hmmm. That was lost in the translation.

How about we call it estrogen poisoning?

I used to believe people in different cultures were different. I don't think they are all that different anymore. Not different enough to matter. I mean not as different as the genders are different.

What's odd to me too is that they never talk about boys.

Right, can't really add much to what's already been pointed out in the thread so far, so I'll just simply say that it's a good episode.

That said...

- Azunyan's dreams were pretty trippy.

- Right at the end of the episode, when Yui saw the food on the table, the first thing that came to my mind was the food poisoning bit at the start.

--Off topic--

Right, now that SaintessHeart is no longer among the living, if you'd like to get a job as an obsessive Azusa fanboy (or fangirl, we're not picky), feel free to write in to the Anime Suki forums, located on teh interwebz.

--On topic--

Did Mugi ever get her yakisoba in the end?

What's odd to me too is that they never talk about boys.
Actually, they have mentioned the idea of boyfriends... but as they go to an all-girls school, have club duties, massive amounts of homework, etc --- there's hardly any chance to even be somewhere one might meet a boy. College might open up opportunities.. but again, if they all end up at the all-girl's university that Mugi has mentioned, that's put any romance off again no doubt. Many Japanese simply resort to modern variations on matchmaking/eHarmony/etc to actually meet people if they are career oriented.

They're often pining/disillusioned because someone attractive and mature like Sawako can't even seem to find a boyfriend... but as we also know, Sawako has other issues that may steer many guys away

I found it a bit weird in the Death Devil episode that Ritsu pointed out that Mio would be popular among boys, even though one would think that the others are as well (well, maybe Yui might be a bit to ditzy for the in-universe people, despite viewer popularity)

It kind of reminded me of the preview for the fan club episode, which didn't say anything about what the plot was going to be.

This was a very good episode, one of the best episodes so far this season-- 10/10. The other being the field trip and seeing what both sides-- K-ON senior members quartet and Azu-- did during that time.

One of the "Azusa's Trippy Dreams" that got me was in the beginning where Azusa brought over watermelon and Ui gave half to Yui who was practicing Fuwa Fuwa Time. And with that Yui changed her playing into a more happy melody and then it was hilarious when it changed into a sad melody because Azusa didn't know Yui had fried food before and was too late to tell her she'll get some kind of stomach ache. Haha the sad melody reflected her aching tummy!

I would be razed. A fist fight could even break out depending on who was doing the razing.

More guys like metal than girls. Seems like she could find one of the cleaner metalheads easy enough. It's like the girls who pick engineering to major in, they can pretty much have their pick of guys in engineering classes.

What is amazing to me is how the writer can keep us interested. The show is about nothing really. There's no explosions. No katanas. No sex.

The crazy fans would rage hard if the girls had anything to do with a boy.

But anyway, I'm still a bit perplexed on the whole tempura/snow cone sickness thing. Haha

Honestly you shouldn't worry about what your male friends would think if they discover what YOU watch. Besides, in general this show IS targeted at a male audience but in my book it's targeted to females as well.

I still find it hilarious that Yui's first impulse when they were lost in the city on the field trip was to call Azunyan for help, then the others were like "What are you doing, SHE'S NOT HERE!!" and then Yui's like, "Oh, right, nevermind."

That was a funny part, I was laughing right there. My reaction was, "Yui, that ain't going to work." Lol XD
